4 Weeks to a More Organized Home: Day 5

Today's challenge was to clean the couch and vacuum underneath.  We actually got rid of our couch a while ago, and just have a futon in our living room now.  It is so much easier to keep clean with the cats.  We just remove the cover, wash, dry, and replace.  No cushions to remove, nothing to vacuum; it's so great!  Anyway, here's the after...
(the towel is because our 1 cat is sick right now, but usually there isn't a towel on our futon, just fyi)
Also, as for the items I decluttered today: more coupons inserts, and some misc notes that were on our end table between the recliners.

40 Bags in 40 Days Update #1

I decided to join along in the 40 bags in 40 days challenge to help decrapify the house before baby Rogers arrives in April.  Here's how week #1 went...
Day #1: Freezers, and a quick kitchen clean up - These are the after pictures.  Still overflowing, but I updated my inventory sheets, and I know what's in there and where it is.  Items decluttered: 7

Love a clean and tidy kitchen, even if the lighting is horrible!

Day #2: Under the bed vacuuming, washing the bed linens, and quick pick-up in the bathroom - Decluttered 7 items, including scrap papers, a lotion lid, and a burnt out jar candle.

Day #3: Futon and Recliners in the Living Room, and the End Table - Decluttered 7 items, including coupon paper scraps, and some scrap paper notes from our end table.

Day #4:Baby Shower Day!  So no cleaning for me!  Items Decluttered: Zero!
